Used to good. 1/5
Since the “look” change to CBSNews, I seem to have lost all interest in it. It looks just like CNN, which I now prefer. Seems like all the news stories are old too. Go back to where you once belonged. Truth in telling. Not political nicety on the GOP side.
I also have other things to do than watch 9 ads in a row 3 times, 27 bloody ads!
A Superb News Source 5/5
By Jim Jimmy Jim
As I travel overseas frequently, I find this CBS source of news to be stellar in coverage and excellent in both breadth and depth of reporting.
Tried again. No improvement. Please bring back the old app. This app has no search capability. It is difficult to read. The app does not categorize the news anymore. For instance, there is no separation of top news, entertainment, etc. I am deleting the app after submitting this review.
I would have given it 5 stars a month ago, but now the writing is huge and hard to read.
I would give it a zero if I could. I hate that my choices are either video since I like to read the news or huge print that I have to scroll down and which makes me ill when trying to read it. This used to be my “go to” app for news. Notice I said “used to”🤢😱.
CBS news on my phone 4/5
By jacq guida
I do like having the news without having to take the time to watch it on tv.
The only complaint I have is having to watch commercials each time I’d like to watch a video. Consequently I rarely watch videos.
The news does not open 1/5
The news doesn’t work
I feel the app is repetitive in its’ segments. Totally over done.
Total loser app...I’m deleting it 1/5
Too much advertising!
Where’s the news? 1/5
By It's no use.
New hasn’t even been available for the past 2 days I tried to look at it.
No News Search Function???? 1/5
Update Limits sharing 1/5
I loved the app before the recent updates. I frequently share CBS content on Social Media. They have eliminated that option on the recent update. How sad.
Good, needs to be great like the news! 3/5
Good app. But in today’s society the expectation for an app like this is FLEXIBILITY. We need to be able to search for stories from (for example) Alex Denis or John Elliot, etc.. and also need a little more intuitive approach to getting to the news quicker. This is an ok app, but it needs to be great like the news they are reporting. Keep going!! Best of luck!
News plus trash 4/5
It would be good to have articles oriented toward improving civilization
No trashy sex scandals
Validate the good souls
Sex should be private no public commentary
Difficult to find shows.
A good start 3/5
Clunky. Hard to retrieve materials posted just minutes earlier. What is available may not match advertised banners.
Great overall rundown of current events and news all in one place. Uncomplicated. Easy to use.
Keep it Real 1/5
By Zeke Z
So far so good. I do not want political views or opinions that just degrade another person. News is what happened and true as can be.
EVERYDAY IT IS WORSE.
Very bad app. 1/5
By Ret Vet
Had to a one star for the poor job that CBS is doing today. The app never finishes the story. Traveling I feel that is time for me too say goodbye for good.
CBS New's app 2/5
Used to be great app, but you can't share stories any more. I've been using this a while and CBS has ”improved” do much it's not worth a darn anymore.
Now I have to scroll like crazy to look for stories. Old app was not good. This one is ridiculous. Time to delete.
Terrible. Absolutely awful. 1/5
Navigation inspired by garden maze. Content is impossible to locate. Headlines are nonexistent.
This is the worst news app ever.
60 Minutes 2 Weeks out of date 1/5
Generally good for broad on demand coverage, but it hasn’t updated 60 Minutes in two weeks.
Clips for illiterate 1/5
Too much of nothing but videos reading is quicker at times one needs to reread an article not watch
Great App, But... 3/5
By Eric Jordan
The app is fantastic, but here are the two things I do not like:
1. In the middle of a very interesting article there will be an abrupt cut to “Breaking News”, and the breaking news will be far less interesting than the content I was just watching. Maybe prompt for breaking news and give me the option to cut away.
2. The same ad will play multiple times during commercial “breaks”, and 900% of the ads are pharma. Not so fun.
3. More and more clickbait. The clickbait has to go. Don’t put it there.
The new format is not as good as it’s predecessor, and I am not finding a way to search for content.
Otherwise the app is a brilliant example of how all news networks should be distributing content.
No ability to email the news..... 3/5
By No farm heroes saga
Please put share news...
CBS should be investigated for influencing election 1/5
CBS try’s its hardest to influence 2029 election they do not report news they report opinion
CBS web site 4/5
Good place to get the latest news and political action....most of the etimed
Build a wall to protect our Southern borders! 4/5
Their will for a couple decades people on both sides will ebb and flow from not only
Political movements but civil unrest forcing
The Mexican government to take control and actually run their country in a fair fashion that it’s ordinary people can live in without fear and persecution from any entity.
Love the live streams! 5/5
By Markham Nolan
The nav at the bottom is so simple and clear, love being able to switch from CBSN to new NY local stream or CBS Sports HQ
CBS News: please allow magnification. Graphs, photos and sometimes text, are pointless without it.
Takes forever to load.
CBS news app 1/5
Geared far too much to video and graphics. Most of that is a real time waster.
You lost a viewer! 1/5
By Sad Sad
It won't run anymore on iPad 2/iOS 9.3.5 (max)
It will ask for v4.0, but App Store will offer up to v 3.6.2 in this configuration!
Shame : ( :(
Recent changes result in a poor app 1/5
App was much better before recent changes. It is now impoverished. It is less informative, which is not desirable for a news app
No Share Button 2/5
I downloaded this app to be able to find news stories I had seen on the TV broadcasts. I wanted to be able to share interesting stories with friends through email, or Facebook. I do not see any way to share, copy, or save the videos. All you can do is watch them and that’s it.
Unless there is a share button that I did not see, this app isn’t as useful as I was anticipating.
The updated version is better in some areas. Better graphics, easier access to all the CBS news brands (cbsn, cbs this morning, cbs evening news). What is disappointing, I had trouble seeing other local news outside of New York. The old app was easier. Please make this easier.
The worst app I have ever seen.
The latest upgrade to CBS news online 1/5
By nothappy with news app
You have taken what was once
seamless and made it annoying
By N m 1
Difficult to navigate
New Format is unusable 2/5
By L. J. West
We’re all are painfully aware that you upgraded this so that you can sell more Advertisements but you are negatively impacting the availability of news.... because nobody wants to sit and look at your ads all the time....the ability to search is terrible! You need to reevaluate!!!
Why do you allow download to a device (iphone or ipad) with iOS9.3.5; only be redirected to an upgrade, which requires iOS 10. Why not allow a download of the last working version?
Videos galore 2/5
There are too many videos on CBS News app. I just would like the headlines and a short narrative.
Video Playback Fail 1/5
You get 1 star because I can’t give zero. I want to watch a video for finding the USS Hornet but every time you press play all you get is a damned ad and the real video never plays.
Excessive ads......! 2/5
Now almost every story is a video with an ad of 15-30 seconds. News videos don’t start playing & often restart the ad again. INCREDIBLY ANNOYING!!!
I used to be exclusively a CBS viewer, but now I’m looking for other news sources that have text instead of time-wasting videos.
CBS........ stop contributing to the assumption that everyone wants flashy, glitzy non-stop information.
Unable to share from the app 2/5
It is horrible that you cannot share anything from the app.
Blank screen 1/5
I have reinstalled the app to no avail
Almost 5star for this fast changing life catching up daily...
There is no “search” feature.
